Is a root canal better than tooth extraction?

A root canal has a better success rate than a tooth extraction because there are little to no future complications associated with the procedure. Although a missing tooth is easy to replace with modern dentistry, it will never be the same as your own natural tooth. In addition, healing from an extraction takes longer and is often more painful than healing from a root canal, and pulling the tooth means even more dental procedures and healing time to replace it later.

Still, pulling the tooth might be right for some situations. Some teeth are simply too far gone to save, even with a root canal. After examining your diseased or damaged tooth, the dentist at Smile Centre India will recommend the most appropriate treatment method based on their professional judgment. Talk to your dentist about any concerns you have with their recommendation.
